I recently went to the Dubliner for St. Patrick's day. I received terrible service and tipped accordingly only to have the bar tender follow me outside to yell at me about my tip. Also they now simply have porta potties instead of a real bathroom, which are nice and nasty for all the ladies out there. The long and short is NEVER GO HERE!!!!!

There seems to be a younger, unfriendly group staffing the place. There is a frigid atmosphere where I kind of have the feeling like everyone is thinking ""Customers are so inconvenient."" I bet my girlfriend that she couldn't make our waitress say ""Your Welcome"" after serving a drink, and I won. I probably would have won the eye-contact bet as well if we had made one.
Side rant: I really wish owners would stop staffing their bars with these kids who think being a bartender is an MTV reality show. I know it's tempting to put a skirt on some eye candy and call her a bartender, but it's just not as good as having a real bartender there. Maybe it will bring in a few dbags to flirt with her, but it's not really worth how much you are going to lose from the heavy and regular drinking crowd. At least put them on days until they learn how to tend.
The bar itself is pretty good. Nice selection of beer and would otherwise be very cozy.
We are in our late 20's and went there about 6 or 7 times before giving up on it. It's just a little too uptight and unfriendly for us.

All I have to say is I've NEVER seen a nastier bathroom in my life. If they don't take care of that, what else don't they keep up with? Washing their dishes? I agree with the last guy, the people that work there all seem to have sprouted from the same social reject garden. You expect that kind of social fringe from a dirty dollar beer place, not a bar in that area. Beer/drinks aren't priced low enough for me to subject myself to things like getting herpies from the beer mugs and HIV from the bathroom.

Loved it before, rarely step in unless forced now. Good beer selection is the one positive thing so if you drink enough you might enjoy yourself if you can even get a drink. A very Creepy staff has been introduced over the last year and they are unfriendly and immature. What happened to Lenny, Vince, Linda and the other nice servers? Now there is grumpy, teennybopper brat, and slow service. The former crowd was a mix of average aged adults and young professionals, they are missing and replaced with a garage rock kiddie crowd. Where are the Irish and English and Scots? I will stop in the Old Monk on occasion but forget this place. Can the Dubliner be saved?

This is the best place to feel at home. The people who work there and the patrons are like family. Great atmosphere but a little smokey at times. The owners stop in on weekends and have shots with their regulars. The only place where I have drank all night and when I got my tab it was $20 bucks. I can't say enough good things about this Dallas icon!
